Two Degrees Of Separation: Tom Felton

Me -> Jason Isaacs -> Tom Felton

Ok, I realize technically that connection doesn't count because I don't know Jason Isaacs I just got a really great close up view of him at a panel, but I don't care. I love my life.

Remember that time I posted from Comic-Con about the new NBC series Awake, starring Jason Isaacs? Let me refresh your mems:

The Awake panel was great, despite the noticeable absence of Tom Felton. We got to watch the pilot episode and it was great. Jason Isaacs plays a man lost between dream and reality when he is in an accident that kills his wife and/or son. He lives to lives, one in which his wife is killed and son survives, and the other in which his son is killed and wife survives. Unable to tell which is dream and which is reality, he struggles to come to terms with his situation. When he falls asleep in one life, he wakes up in the other. Meanwhile, he goes back to work as a detective and must see a psychiatrist to help him deal with the grief. The only problem is that he has a different psychiatrist in each life and both have very compelling arguments on why their storyline is real and the other a dream.

The show was quite exciting and compels you to watch more to find out where the line separating dream and reality exists.

Now you can watch the ah-maze-ing trailer for the show and get sucked into the story just as I did:

I've had it running for about the past 30 minutes on repeat in another window, this is my new obsession.
